Connecticut Compromise

At last, Roger Sherman, delegate from Connecticut, proposed a compromise between the two plans. This so-called Great Compromise called for a bicameral legislature; however, the upper house of this body, the Senate, would provide each state with equal representation, whereas representation in the lower house, the House of Representatives, would provide representation proportionate to each states population. Moreover, the chief executivethe presidentwould not be elected by the representatives in the legislature, but by an Electoral College.
